the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 105
God's Purpose Stands

according to His purpose
what must His purpose be
that God can only be God
if He is sovereign and free

to know, enjoy and praise
the glory of His name
and make this known through all the earth
greater than any other kind of fame

to see, to savour and to sing
for the glory of God's grace
yet as my mind is stretched beyond
i could only stand amazed

all my thoughts and emotions
were meant for God alone
until sin and idols came
and turned my heart to stone

how can i bear to look on
not care about everything He has said
feel lifeless and unmoved
not alive but only dead

what meaning is there to life
disappointment in humanity
when everything breaks down
then can He grant you liberty

what a great meaning life has
what a great purpose this is
there is no other life worth living
than the life He gives to glorify His
